Quarterback Kyler Murray will not be at Arizona Cardinals practice this week, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Meanwhile, first-team All-Pro wideout Deebo Samuel will not be in attendance when the San Francisco 49ers begin OTAs on Monday, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Murray is seeking a lucrative extension from the Cardinals following his third NFL campaign. His agent, Eric Burkhardt, submitted a long-term contract proposal to Arizona in February before pulling it off the table later this spring.

Arizona picked up the fifth-year option on Murray's rookie deal in April, locking in his $29.7-million salary for the 2023 season.

The 2019 first overall pick has yet to receive a contract extension from the Cardinals. However, general manager Steve Keim has said there's "zero chance" the team will trade the passer.

Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said he expects Murray to be at mandatory minicamp next month, according to Tyler Dragon of USA Today.

Samuel, 26, finds himself in a standoff with the 49ers after requesting a trade from the organization in April. San Francisco reportedly turned down multiple draft-day offers for the star receiver. General manager John Lynch believes the two sides can fix the relationship.

Samuel is entering the final year of his rookie contract which will see him earn a base salary of $3.9 million in 2022, according to Spotrac.

Further, quarterback Baker Mayfield will not attend the Cleveland Browns' OTA sessions when they begin on Tuesday, Schefter reports.

The top pick in the 2018 NFL Draft requested a trade from Cleveland when the team became serious candidates to acquire Deshaun Watson. Mayfield, who underwent shoulder surgery at the end of the 2021 season, is due $18.858 million.
